The first sequel to Q*bert, titled Q*bert's Qubes, was released in 1983.
It was manufactured by Mylstar Electronics,[Note 3] and used the same hardware as the original. The game features Q*bert, but introduces new enemies: Meltniks, Soobops, and Rat-A-Tat-Tat. The player navigates the protagonist around a plane of cubes while avoiding enemies. Jumping on a cube causes it to rotate, changing the color of the visible sides of the cube. The goal is to match the cubes in a row; later levels require multiple rows to match.
